"I typed in biodegradable bags, and these bags came up when I did the search. I was in a hurry and ordered them thinking they were biodegradable. These bags are made from recycled materials, which is a plus, but they are not biodegradable. They work well, however, I would not buy again, except in a pinch. Biodegradable bags don't hang around in the environment for hundreds of years, they biodegrade."
"I used to buy the other tall kitchen bags from them that have a mere tie, but this red drawstring is great! It means I don't have to touch the top/opening of the bag at all, which often has some liquids splattered. The drawstring allows me to keep my hands clean, so that I after I carry it out to the trash area of my building, I don't have to trek back upstairs to wash my hands before proceeding to the next errand...The plastic in itself is somewhat sheer and certainly not as thick as other non-eco brands, but I haven't had it rip open on me ever."
